Christmas, Snow, and a Give Away!

We had a great Christmas here at The Smith House and I hope that you and your family did too! I think that everyone got what they wanted but most important was spending time with family and celebrating the birth of our Saviour! One thing that I did this Christmas was eat wayyyyyy too much! I always spend Christmas Eve cooking...I mean the entire day! I cooked sausage balls which my cousin and I destroyed in about 3 hours, Oreo truffles which are sooooo good and I can only make them once a year or else I'll have a serious problem getting into my skinny jeans, homemade hot chocolate, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, green beans, and rolls. Yummy! My dad's side of the family came over for dinner on Christmas Eve and we ate all of the above plus turkey my aunt made and most importantly my Meemaw's caramel pie! Oh my!

The sinful Oreo truffles!
My Meemaw and me. She is a true blessing to me!

My cousin Nate and I! It had been 1 year since I'd seen him. He's more like a brother. We were basically neighbors for 18 years.
All ready for bed so Santa can come!
Chevy played one last prank
 
As I hadn't had enough to eat on Christmas Eve, I got up Christmas morning and cooked Cheesey Potato Casserole, eggs, biscuits, pigs in a blanket, and we had a Honey Baked Ham for Brian's family. They always come over on Christmas morning and then we headed over to his aunt's for Christmas with the rest of the family and another HUGE meal.

Aubree with a pair of converse that I like much better than the others!

It snowed here on Christmas night. A very rare thing! The kids were excited...well, except for Caleb!
 
Carter had to ride his Jeep in the snow.
